Uruguay’s President to Be Honored in Argentina for Medical Work

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguayan President Tabare Vazquez will make a private trip to Buenos Aires on Nov. 16 to receive an award for his work as a physician, officials told EFE.

Vazquez’s trip will last only a few hours and he has not scheduled a meeting with Argentine President Cristina Fernandez or any other officials in the neighboring country’s government, presidential communications office representatives said.

The Uruguayan daily El Pais reported Sunday that Vazquez would be honored by a science journal at the Buenos Aires School of Medicine for his work as a medical doctor and efforts against tobacco use.

Vazquez, an oncologist, backed strict anti-smoking legislation during his first term in office from 2005 to 2010.

Tobacco giant Philip Morris International responded by suing Uruguay in February 2010.

Vazquez is returning to Montevideo on Monday after a two-week official trip that took him to France and Japan.
